Western Tanzania provides an indelible mix for the luxury traveler. It's remote and off the beaten track, with beautiful landscapes defined by wild allure and outstanding lodges providing an opulent base for the wilderness adventure. Then unique experiences provide the out of the ordinary: tracking wild chimpanzees, horseback safari in the Serengeti, luxury mobile camping. Mixing the Serengeti and the western reserves, these two weeks offer an exclusive immersion in Africa.
